William and Kate shouldn’t get all of the fun...

With a royal baby days away from being born, shouldn’t you get to enjoy the birth announcement in royal style, too? In order to do that, you’re going to need a few authentic recipes and tips to help you welcome this new bundle of joy properly.

Did you know that in 1866, Queen Victoria bestowed Colman’s Mustard with an official Royal Warrant, making it a pantry staple in the royal kitchen at Buckingham Palace ever since?  Colman’s can be used to make Bloody Mary cocktails for a royal brunch, mustard and cheese dip for a festive hors d’oeuvre, or mustard-spiced stout cake with roasted pears for a decadent dessert. You can use this official pantry item in many of your spirits’ dishes for a truly authentically English time. To help you pull it off, Colman’s gave us some great tips and recipes that will come in handy when welcoming royal baby number two!

Colman’s Tips for Hosting the Ultimate Royal Soirée

·   Pass around tiaras to make the mood festive

·  Serve a traditional British cocktail, like Pimm’s Cups (the drink to order at polo matches)

·  Play some “football” (i.e.: American soccer) in the backyard
